Good report. Thanks for posting!
A friend and I did the other trail from Mike's to El Coyote a few years ago. The one that heads up the hill right away, to the west I believe. It was tough but the way you guys went looked even tougher. Good job knocking that one out!

Also curious where you got your back fender rack for your 250, I would like to find one for my CRF250X.

Thanks
That rack is not available anymore---a guy started making them----got overwhelmed with orders and didn't have the time to deal with it.

There are many things that make Baja so neat-------one of the best things is there is not hardly anyplace you can't ride. None of this greenie wilderness bull. They may be the rare spot.

Always nice to read about riding someplace warm when you're someplace cold with a motorcycle in a bunch of pieces. I'll have to get myself south one of these days...

Question

Mark,

Isn't about time you quit scratching the dog and talking to the UPS girl and got back to the report?

BTW, PM inbound.

Dang, wished I'd known you guys were there, my son and I just got home Sunday from 6 weeks and 5000 miles in Baja. You stayed in the same site we did at Canon de Guadalupe



Look familiar? You can just make out the cool bamboo archway inside the palapa. We were there Jan 9-10 ...

Sorry to find out Dingweed was injured, but hopeful the recovery is going well. Good luck.

Did you get attacked by the donkey's ???

Dingweeds is back working I heard from his wife---------he's a brick layer --pretty hard work---so he must be doing pretty good.

I've learned he's a tough ole' fart tho.

Nope, a few cucarachas tried to attack but we knew the dance...

El Chupacabra got us in El Tecolote, north of La Paz-------we had stocked up on bread, tortillas flapjacks, pan dulce--all the good stuff we'd been out of--when we rolled through La Paz. We were camped next to a bunch of nice Canadians (wow, what a shock ) who invited us to share their warm and entertaining campfire------and left our saddlebags open. When we got back, good 'ol Chup had managed to find every bag with carbs, ripped them open and devoured them.

Another lesson learned.

Thanks for taking us down south Mark and Scott!!! Baja is on my bucket list, and now I have your tracks and waypoints tucked away for future reference.

Scott, hope the pain is getting better, just no easy route to heal broken ribs, other than time and perhaps some single malt. Your refusal to give up the ride after the fall is a real testament to your strong character. Perhaps that broken rear seal was a sign from a higher power.

I hope you get down there someday----we are going back for sure.

Just talked to Scott this morning----------he's off on a several day ride down in Arizona---lucky turd gets to ride year round.
So he's feeling pretty good---but a little sore.

I'll be back at Scotts in early April for our next ride.

Excellent! Another upcoming BigDog/Dingweeds ride to look forward to. Maybe the the new Adventure Van will make it's premiere?

Vicarious living at its best.
